on up. >> hi, supervisors. i'm tom king. i'm not a lobbyist or a paid employee here. i just had a meeting locally here. i just wanted to come because i think the focus throughout all the budget meetings should be on reducing expenses. my main concern is that the agendas are not detailed enough. i think they should be more detailed for the public to better evaluate. with respect to this item, 400k seems kind of high. wondering how many sites are involved. something basic like that would help the overall evaluation, thanks. >> thank you very much. are there any other speakers? >> good morning, supervisors. my name is karin woods. i worked on the blue greenway project for six years with the neighborhood parks council, which is now the parks alliance. this is a really good step forward to get this grant because while the port has done a tremendous job of creating parks along the blue greenway, there are gaps. this will help determine whether there are any environmentally challenged areas of the southeast waterfront could be included in the blue greenway. i urge your support, thank y

, supervisors, tom king once more. i support the project but i do have concerns. the presentation was very well done. i didn't hear anything about the residents living close to proposal site. will there be a study to examine this impact? that said revenue alsoing increase as visiting team also stay in san francisco perhaps two to three nights, especially with east coast teams and travel days. also nba teams book entire floors of hotels for security reasons. pro sports teams are owned by billionaires, so please be cautious with the final contract. i think two people should be more involved in the decision. one is harvey rose, a superb budget analyst. the other is a san francisco resident named gund. he is very charitable. he and his family own the cleveland team. they would have details, as cleveland as a new arena. they would regard ferry service corresponding to warriors home games. important to keep in mind warriors only play 41 home and the average stadium seats 28,000 to 30,000 so additional revenue streams are critical. ticket prices, it is important in the contract to keep them low. espec

or departments. i fully support -- >> please speak into the microphone. >> tom king once again, thanks. my comments are not a critique of the efficacy of the program or the efficacy of the staff or departments; it is really about funding and reducing costs. on this specific item -- i understand this is a specific grant we have already received, but i think the main issue has to do with i guess what i would call the hyphenization of san francisco. for some reason city government feels that we need to be compartmentalized i want sub cat girs. people with h.i.v. a.i.d.s. should have a separate allocation but why the need to break down the segment even further? you know, this is h.i.v. positive, transgender woman of color. what about transgender men or transgender woman of no color, which i imagine would be white. again, i don't quite understand that. in san francisco there is no majority race. i believe in the last census that was determined. so i guess it is just the -- like i said, the hyphenization is of less importance than helping everyone as a whole, thanks. >> thank you. are there othe

who wish to speak on item five? come on up. >> supervisor, tom king again. i'm not quite sure i understood the actually agenda item. when it says to participate, building a medical home, are they referring to building a facility for h.i.v. positive homeless individuals? is that -- >> why don't you finish your public comment. >> my comment was based on that. if it is not, it is moot. i just think that all people with h.i.v. should feel part of the community as whole, not an isolated part. they should be welcomed by everyone. employers, landlords, et cetera. not a separate facility, thanks. >> thanks very much. are there members of the public who wish to speak on item five. public comment is closed. to answer this gentleman's question, the home means where they receive primary services. it is not necessarily a physical place where they are housed but a term used to describe where someone receiving their primary care services, their medical home. so with that, colleagues, do we have a motion to send the item forward with recommendation? okay. we will do that without objection. to m

, supervisors. tom king. congratulations to the department for securing such a great enlarged grant. i run a small charity myself. unfortunately our grants are several decimal points to the left. i think the presenter in front of me answered a lot of the questions i had. my main hope is that some of the moneys can be used to stop the huge problem in san francisco we have with human trafficking, especially trafficking of women. look at the back pages of san francisco weekly or bay guardian for confirmation of this enormous issue. i hope that could be allocated in some fashion, thank you. >> thank you. are there other members of the public who wish to speak on this item, item number six? seeing none, public comment is closed. colleagues, do we have a motion to send the item forward with recommendation? we have that motion, we can do that without objection. thank you. item seven. >> item seven, resolution finding the project proposed by gsw arenas, llc, an affiliate of the golden state warriors to rehabilitate port property at piers 30-32, develop on the pier multipurpose venue usable for pub

're receiving from the united king tom about that. the best thing we can do to avoid more names being added to that list is to support those trying to bring about an agreed ceasefire. but that has to be on both sides, of course, and it has to be an end to rocket fire against israel as well as to the israeli military operations. >> mr. gordon henderson. >> thank you, mr. speaker. would my right honorable friend agree with me that it's easy to call for israel to show restraint from the safety of this chamber, but such p restraint is difficult when you live with the daily threat of seeing your family and friends being wiped out by the rockets fired from gaza? is. >> here, here. >> of course that is, that is true. and i think some of the -- we heard earlier the need for balanced media reporting. some of the media reporting on this occasion has brought out what a terrifying experience ist is for people in southern israel as well as for people in gaza. so it is important to understand that, and it's important to direct ourselves to bringing these matters to an end. >> caroline lucas. >> thank you

in minnesota, steve king in iowa is running against the wife after former governor, tom vilsack and he's feeling the heat, too, an interesting night. >> one of the interesting strategies, the reason they said they would take the house back, they would put pressure on the so-called orphan states, california, and where mitt romney isn't playing, they're not competitive in that race, but the house seats, okay, we can plow a lot of money in, and republican turnout will be down and we can turn the seats, but they're going to win a couple of them, but surprising so far in the polling, republicans are holding their own in those seats, why? >> you're right. they are he' doing this very aggressively, especially going after freshmen that won in 2010, guys like bobby schilling in illinois the first republican to get elected in his district in 30 years. the reason you're not going to see a huge shift is because one thing the republicans did well. not only being aggressive in the south and some of their home tougher, but they in contrast to the senate recruited some really great candidates themselv
